“Everything is beautiful in its moment, but the ripening is hidden from your mind, and you cannot comprehend beginnings or endings. From this I concluded it is best for you to rejoice in what is and devote your life to goodness. This is the gift of reality: eat and drink and find work that pleasures your heart. Reality’s flow is endless, moment to moment nothing is added and nothing is taken away, and its sole purpose is to open you to wonder.”    – Ecclesiastes 3:11-3:14
